Balochistan has the second highest per capita provincial budget
It makes no difference, if all those funds are used to build army bases or some thing else not related to ppl. For example those funds can be spent for digging oil wells or setting up mining infra for companies to exploit which does not help local ppl in any way.

Why dont you tell us how much an average person in balochistan earns ?

HM was asked if air power will be used next. He ignored the question.

Just a predator drone armed with couple of hellfires will have huge detrimental effect on ambushes set up by Naxals.
Army or Airforce will not be used in internal operations, that is the stated objective reasoning being that they are our own ppl. So all those hi-tech weapons are ruled out. Suppose say even if you use airpower and kill naxals, media will end up reporting it as innocent tribals were killed. In the end it will become counter productive.

Below from foreign intelligence thread
Chinese are big time hypocrites, handing over such heinous crimes to ISI will cost them more. Otherside these chinese deploying SAMs in POK and Afg
They are preparing for multi front war. India should keep the CPM and CPI under strict watch. And also the business community dealing extensively with China. All the Chinese trade should be monitored.

Centre extends ceasefire pact with 3 Naga groups by a year​

The Centre has extended ceasefire agreement with three Naga groups for further period of one year. The groups include National Socialist Council of Nagaland-NK (NSCN-NK), National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Reformation (NSCN-R) and National Socialist Council of Nagaland-K-Khango (NSCN-K-Khango).

All these groups are breakaway factions of NSCN-IM and NSCN-K and signed the ceasefire agreements with the government over the years.
“It was decided to extend the ceasefire agreements for a further period of one year with effect from April 28, 2022 to April 27, 2023 with NSCN-NK and NSCN-R, and from April 18, 2022 to April 17, 2023 with NSCN-K-Khango,” a statement from the Ministry of Home Affairs said.

The development comes even as NSCN-IM leaders, led by General Secretary Th Muivah, Tuesday met with Centre’s representative for Naga peace talks, AK Mishra, at the outfit’s headquarters, Camp Hebron near Dimapur.

Former special director of the Intelligence Bureau, Misra, who replaced RN Ravi as the Centre’s representative last year, reached Nagaland on Monday to discuss the vexed Naga political issue. He is expected to meet the state government’s core committee, as well as the Naga National Political Groups (NNPG) during his stay.

This is the first time that talks on the Naga issue were held inside the NSCN-IM headquarters. The discussions on Tuesday lasted for little more than two hours.

The meeting comes a week after Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio, Deputy Chief Minister Y Patton and former Chief Minister T R Zeliang met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi to discuss the status of peace talks, which seems to have hit a roadblock since 2019.

The government has been trying to engage with various Naga groups, and not just NSCN-IM, to finalise the Naga peace accord. It is an approach that the NSCN-IM has not been comfortable with, particularly since former Naga interlocutor RN Ravi said the Naga peace deal would happen with or without NSCN-IM.

Last September, the government had signed ceasefire agreement with the Niki Sumi faction of the NSCN-K, which had signed a ceasefire agreement with the government in 2001, but withdrew from it in 2015 under the leadership of SS Khaplang, who is now dead.

Amit Shah meets Naga leaders over peace accord​

Home Minister Amit Shah Monday held a meeting with Naga leaders over the long pending Naga peace accord, it is learnt. The delegation was led by Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio.

In a statement, the Ministry of Home Affairs said it was committed to resolving Naga issues to the satisfaction of all stakeholders.

“The Union Home & Cooperation Minister, Shri Amit Shah met with a wide spectrum of the political leadership of Naga Groups, led by the Chief Minister of Nagaland Shri Neiphu Riu in New Delhi today. Many issues were discussed at the meeting. Talks over the Naga issues have been in progress for a number of years… the efforts of the Government of India have been to resolve the many complicated issues that are involved in the Naga talks,” the statement said.

The statement also dismissed reports on possible solutions as “speculative”, since negotiations are still on.

The Naga political issue has been hanging fire for several years with the government in negotiations with multiple Naga groups, including the largest — the National Security Council of Nagalim-Isak Muivah (NSCN-IM).

In 2015, the government signed a Framework Agreement with the NSCN-IM for giving final shape to the peace accord. Seven years later, it remains a work in progress. The NSCN-IM has been demanding a separate constitution and “national flag”, which the Centre has rejected.
The Centre’s pointsman in the negotiations, former IB special director Akshay Mishra, is learnt to have proposed to the group the granting of a “cultural flag”. NSCN-IM has rejected this.

Sources said the accord is not reaching finality largely due to an obstinate stance taken by the NSCN-IM, even as other Naga groups are ready to accept the terms of the Centre and bring an end to the decades old insurgency in the state.
